According to the article, this concerns "the numerous amendments they will most likely submit to the progress report by Serbia rapporteur David McAllister."
The daily writes that all Croatian MEPs, including left and right wingers, are now "preparing to ask for EU's more strict stance toward Belgrade, demanding the solving of the numerous open bilateral issues."

"Croats will again try to push through their demand for Serbia to give up on prosecuting war crimes committed in Croatia, to find all the missing, and correct the border on the Danube," the newspaper says.

According to the article, "the list of complaints" includes the demands concerning the Croat minority in Serbia, and condemnation of Serbia's lack of cooperation with the Hague Tribunal.

As for McAllister's report, the first version should be submitted to the EP at the start of next year, the newspaper said it learned from his cabinet.

MEPs from Hungary, Bulgaria, and Romania could also submit their amendments, "most likely seeking, as has been the case previously, better status for their national minorities in Serbia."
